On Tuesday, September 17, Dominican Republic government officials closed land borders with Haiti until further notice due to ongoing unrest in Port-au-Prince. The move comes amid a wave of violent protests in the Haitian capital in recent days over fuel shortages and a government corruption scandal. A heightened security presence is to be anticipated along the border area in the near term.


Individuals in the Dominican Republic are advised to monitor the situation and refrain from unnecessary travel to the border regions with Haiti.
